    Okay so my baby was heads down at my last midwife appointment. He seems to have moved but I can't work out where he's laid! I'm going to ask today at the midwife :)

    I am SO amazed at what a different his change in position has made!! I have an anterior placenta and thought I could feel lots of kicks before.. I was wrong!! However he's laid, on the left side there's a body part that constantly sticks out and makes me squeal hahaha. OMG I can't imagine how movements are without an anterior placenta. It's so funny! I'm so interested to see what body part he likes sticking out when I ask MW lol!! I thought they were meant to start running out of room at this stage.. I've never felt such strong movements!!

    Pointless post just thought I'd share :)

    My baby is head-down but posterior presentation (meaning sunny-side-up, or back-to-back). The movements are crazy. I am 37 weeks tomorrow and this kid has showed no signs of slowing down! At this point he's big and squished! I feel every little move, not to mention the big movements!

    I can tell at this point what everything is, too. That's a foot under my ribs, or a knee poking out forward, or a booty or a shoulder rolling over my hip bone. I love that he's active and healthy and strong, but sheesh... I'm exhausted!

    I think this baby just can't get comfy. He was head down at 28 weeks, then feet down at 29 weeks, then he turned probably 2-3 more times. When I had my midwife on Tuesday, she said he was head down and a tiny bit engaged (4/5ths palpable). I'm pretty sure he's laying sideways again now! Then sometimes he likes to bundle up all on one side so I have a wonky bump! I don't remember this with my son so I most be a lot more roomy in there this time round! x

    My midwife said hes heads down and the thing thats sticking out is a bum.. hmm.. fair enough she knows what shes talking about but its more like a knee, or hand or something as its small and moves right across the side of my stomach causing it to ripple...hmmmmm
